Urge to rewrite

From the start I have been using this site to write my daily posts. About a year ago I started cross posting the text to the 200wad site as well.

Along the way I have done few improvements. But at it's core it has remained the same. A self hosted Drupal site. There is nothing wrong with it, it just works. Still, I would like to do something new. Something more modern, cutting edge even.

I don't get to code much anymore at my work. So I need to find these hobby projects to satisfy that itch. There might not be the need for it. I just want to do it.

Or do I? It's not that simple. So far, I have gotten away with minimal maintenance. I wouldn't want to change that. There are also so many new technologies I want to try out. It's hard to choose. And while such a simple writing platform sounds easy enough to implement there is some additional work needed: import the old posts from the current site, implement the cross posting to 200 wad through api and so on.

Luckily I'm not in a hurry. There is no pressing need to update. So I could just get started, work on the new platform whenever I have time.
